The Story Of Looking
Saturday 26th March 2:00 PM - Alhambra
Cert:15 Year: 2021 Length:90mins
Writer/Director Mark Cousins was awarded the 'Outstanding Achievement Award' from the 'British Association of Film, Television and Screen Studies' 2020.
The Story of Looking sees Mark prepare for surgery to restore his vision. He explores the role that visual experience plays in our individual and collective lives. At a time when we are more assailed by images than ever, he reveals how looking makes us who we are, lying at the heart of human experience, empathy, discovery and thought.
This deeply personal film will be followed by an online Q&A with Mark himself.
